This is a blog for DevNews ~ These other Groups will, also, feature the blog: ohioDeviants Group-Eaze disney-parkhoppers DisneyDreamers All-Art-Forever dA-Is-Not-Porn etc. The latest update that deviantART did was limiting the number of members who want to join our groups. The maximum is 10 deviants per day. The capability of receiving an unlimited number of deviants at any time day and night have become a history.
That describes everything, I was completely oblivious that unlimited deviation submission was against deviantART policy. Does anyone care to describe, why or how, specifically? You need to start listening to your valued members who pay for this site. They are not a bunch of idiots who are out to cause trouble, leave crude, insulting messages or bully people. They are people who have been involved here for many years and love - or loved - this place and your behavior is only making things worse. ALL groups now have a ten submission-per-day limit for galleries AND Favorites for Founders, Administrators, and Members. Not per folder, per DAY; a 24-hour period from the second a Deviation is submitted, and not a DA "day" that starts and ends at midnight PST or PDT, so no thinking ten items can be submitted at 11:30 PM PST then again at 12:01 AM PST! DeviantART punched a deviation submission restriction for the groups and Add media library. You cannot submit or change the settings to make a group unlimited even after toggling to go up to 1000 deviations per day. I'm sick of corruption and lazy admin that does nothing helpful for us. I will be searching for a new art website because this is seriously getting out of control. With this, deviantART is officially DEAD! I'm not recommending you to do a boycott, but that wouldn't hurt doing it. Now I don't know is this a joke or not. However, after seeing an article written by a senior member WDWParksGal
about this, I don't know what I should trust! Okay, so the latest unwanted DeviantArt update is "maximum deviation submission limit for the organization is 10 deviations per day because according to staff members' logic, it's considered spam and an abuse of exploit system.
If you have now decided to do this backward limit, you need to update this. Besides, send an official statement to the community, because this is clearly a news. There are many organizations where you could send tons of deviations with no control until you do not hit the folder limit! There is no way the team couldn't make out this, why 10, why not 50 deviations each? When we reported accounts that mission was to increase a fake number of favorites, visitors, and a number of badges. All that you could say was; there is nothing we can do about it.
Where is an update of this, where is a journal entry done by the operators of this site? We didn't get any pieces of information related to this matter; this case is similar to the CORE and increasing the prices of it, including shutting down the ability to report an art robbery by using third-party infringement reporting. [We still don't have any pieces of information of why they choose to give us an article, which is full of holes, lies, and mistaken facts when it comes to copyright. Not to mention how a protect art team is hideously childish and rude.] We want an explanation about this, not recycled answers that you have given to others. We are not in the mood to read it.
This is not exactly about protecting the community or anything either (I. E. Referring to the part where they say, "It's a violation of the dA policy and etiquette service.
" When choosing the "Add Media" alternative, the most choices that will be available is 32. This includes Core Members when choosing a Favorite Folder to choose dividers, graphics, text graphics or other items to add to a comment or journal. Whoever is paying these people to feed us such hastily made bullshit needs to step up their game because they are not even trying to excuse their stupid rules anymore.
I mean, if they are so concerned about the legal bullshit, why they didn't enforce this earlier? Who suggested this idea anyway? Not to mention there is a folder limit of 120, including subfolders (for Core Member galleries), so bear that in mind when creating new folders to organize Deviations to use to keep each folder at 32 deviations. This means that many folders will surface when they decide where to put a new favorite. What a load of bullshit.
It is more important for our members to keep their eyes open for articles of interest to the community to send to the group. Members can send ANY articles found from around DeviantART, so if you see an article you think will be of interest to the communities please present it.

New Gallery Submission Limit (update)http://cichantea.deviantart.com/journal/Group-Submission-Limits-and-Issues-with-dA-633574306
I'm going to assume you've read that journal, so if you haven't, please do.
As you may or may not know, Bobo-Kitty, Caffinated-Pinecone, and I (the admins) have discussed changing the organization of the group gallery, which would necessitate upgrading to super. At the time, we asked for donations if possible and advertisement at least, if not. We only had one person donate, but they gave us 1 000 points! Which was really awesome! I couldn't believe someone was so nice as to donate a little more than 1/5 of what we needed!
However, now that gallery submissions are severely limited, and being a super group doesn't affect that, I'm thinking that upgrading to super might not be worth it, even if it will allow better organization. (We could do something similar to our plan anyway, but it would not be nearly as great.)
If dA doesn't change this feature, and the other admins and I decide
You thought we wouldn't notice?!So, DeviantArt has made a little change to the system, but the average member has probably not noticed it yet. This is because it only affects those who manage groups, and group members which has been allowed to submit in bulk. That's right, now nobody can submit more than max 10 images per day, no matter what rank they have in a group, there's no 100, 1000, or unlimited anymore, and they removed "per year" from the list as well. They've also somehow managed to mess up existing group permissions, I noticed that some of the folders which were set off limit to regular members were free to submit to, and I know it was off limit a couple of weeks ago, before my vacation. So, if you're founder, or in charge of group permissions, be sure to check the member settings as soon as possible, not only the number of images permitted, but all other settings as well, just in case. Please share this journal with others, add it to your groups, make your own journal with your own thoughts, do something,
DA, you're drunk, go home!Seriously, why the restrictions on group submissions?
Do you realize how much money some of us pour into these groups? These communities? And you just up and limit us with no official word? Come on..
Let's Talk About... The New Group Artwork LimitSo recently, the DA Staff changed something about groups.
They made groups have a 10 artwork limit each day.
I do not feel like that is right. Some people's lives depend on getting advertised in groups.
In sent in a ticket, and here is what I said:
'Dear DA staff,
Please consider changing the amount of allowed works for groups.
Your recent change of the max 10 a day is not enough. You have said you changed this to try and stop spam but I find that reason not good enough; people rely on groups to get commissions and make an income.
When people do not see their work they lose business.
You are hurting the community as a whole by having this limit, and I don't think it's right.
What if their only source of income comes from getting commissions, and they end up not having enough art displayed, and get none. What if they were going to lose their house or they needed money for food, but they couldn't get enough advertisement because there wasn't a good enough limit in the groups?
Group Submission Limits and Issues with dAAll right. I'm going to be adding links to other journals on this issue as I find them in addition to sharing my experience and why I don't like the new feature concerning group submission limits. Please don't ignore this journal, this is important for all of us users. Thanks in advance to everyone who reads the whole journal.
By now you probably know that groups have a maximum submission limit of 10 deviations per day per folder. This isn't really news anymore.
I am an admin of 8 groups, in 7 of those, I'm the founder. I submit anything to my groups that fits their purpose, mostly only for the seven I created, as the other is quite large and have more active members. I have experienced problems adding deviations to my group gallery, primarily for OriginalComicsGalore. I should be able to add 10 deviations to each folder per day, as you can see here: I have double checked the setting for my group. It doesn't help or change anything. I c
Has dA lost its prime?Assalamo alaykum and hello all my friends. I hope you are all doing great. Enjoying awesome health and weather. And I am sorry for being so inactive, life is too busy these days.
I saw many friends talking about dA on recent 'incident' and I saw many people closing their groups or even thinking of getting rid of dA all together. So I thought may be I should also add my two cents in case someone would be interested in it.
Being a software engineer what I have come to conclude is that dA owners are having severe problems in running this site. We are seeing more and more server related issues this year and they are only getting worse. They had to decrease the number of requests (http post/get...) per day to keep in their server budget and do whatever it takes to get more money so they can keep running this site.
Core was what they first thought might help them in buying more resources in AWS ('Amazon web services' which provides the server, storage, cloud and all other online stuff) but t
:iconfantasy-stock-group: :iconwingit-stock: :iconstock-for-premades: :iconmindspan:
I was requesting stocks into Fantasy-Stock-Group and when I hit the 11th one, I was "told" that I would exceed the 10 limit per day for the group. I just paused and stared at the screen for a moment. Then I thought, "What the hell???" There AREN'T SUPPOSED TO BE ANY LIMITS on submissions per day.
So, I trotted off to Manage Members when I saw this:
And I thought, oh, okay, the Permissions in Manage Members reset themselves, which they do sometimes, so I went to change the 10 Per Day Global Limit EVEN FOR THE FRICKIN' FOUNDER, back to the 1000 per day the global limit used to have. Sooooooooooooooo, I click on the box and when the dropdown menu popped up I went to scroll past the TEN Submission Limit only to behold this:
Limit TEN. Period! Even for the Founder!!! WTF???????
The confinements that the Administration did are the worst thing they ever did for the past 17 years. What's the point of modifying the settings of submitting illustration in specific folders for it? To prevent spam? What are they talking about, like; group administrators are not able to handle this problem by themselves? The same problem is with the exclusion of third party copyright infringement reporting, with an examination of how it's our fault that our artwork looted. It's not our fault that we have art highwaymen, it's your fault because you don't know how to do the job. First, they gave us a journal full of rubbish that has nothing to do with our problem that we have with art robbers, then they raised prices of subscriptions, and now they hit us a restriction of submitting deviations into the groups related to the art community.
deviantART = Facebook 2.0
I'm sorry to assert this, but this true, deviantART is gradually transforming into Facebook. If they continue at this rate, soon or later, this site will collapse, as if it's not already started to collapse.
Visit official suggestion forum to cast your votes let's hope that the admins will see our suggestion and increase the global limit to 100 deviations per day, not 10 per day.
